Catherine Loria – The Next Pinay Singing Sensation

First, it was Charice. Now, here comes Catherine Loria!

Catherine Loria is a phenomenal rising teen diva that started to sing even when she was just only 2 years old. At an early age of 3, her parents started to join her in amateur singing contests, people just simply fall in love and adore her upon hearing her singing ability. There is one old lady whom her parents didn’t even know approached them and gave her a ‘charm’ and told them that Catherine will be a big star someday.

True enough as Catherine grew up, she became a studio contestant in ABS-CBN’s MTB Munting Miss Universe when she was just only 5 years old. The late Rico Yan predicted that she will be the next Regine Velasquez after she belted out ‘Dakilang Lahi’ in the talent portion.

Catherine is now 13 years old this year, well grown-up, very humble, love her craft, an honor student, and with big dream in her heart to help her family in raising their standard of living. She has numerous awards in local singing contest under her belt. She was a Grand Finalist in ABS-CBN MTB’s Bulilit Popstar when she was just only 7 years old, grand finalist in Eat Bulaga’s Batang Star, a weekly winner in QTV-11 Popstar Kids, Champion in the Extreme Karaoke Competition in Bantay OCW on NBN 4 hosted by Ms. Susan K, SM Lucena and SM Batangas LoveDuet Daddy’s Treat Grand Champion, and with hundred of trophies and awards from various singing competitions in nearby provinces of Laguna, Quezon, Batangas. She was also the grand champion in the Kids For Christ National singing competition beating 30 talented kids from across the country which was held in Expo, Clark Philippines in 2004. She even captured the heart of the Mission Society of the Philippines (MSP at 40’s) songwriting contest, when she interpreted Mart Ilagan’s entry ‘Paglilingkod’ and nodded a 2nd runner award given by the juror.

Her latest achievement is the biggest and ultimate award every singer dreams of winning. She just won Grand Champion Performer of the World in the recently concluded World Championships of Performing Arts, the “Talent Olympics” if you must.

Catherine’s big win has made her the third Grand Champion Performer of the World from the Philippines after Jed Madela in 2005 and Aria Clemente in 2007.
